FastFulcrum: Developing Contextual Skillsets (Course II)

Evans Mehew · March 17, 2016

“From this course areas I’ve developed include: learning how to recognize an intersection of my current skills and experiences; how to gain more knowledge that can be added which will help as automation increases in the workplace and ideas of how to pivot in the future as change is needed both personally and professionally.” ~ Robert B.; FastFulcrum student

Developing Contextual Skillsets (Course II)

Remaining relevant in the Age of Automation will require myriad skills & abilities, coupled with radical new perspectives. Developing Contextual Skillsets profoundly changes and expands one’s worldview, moving away from the siloed, industrial model of specialization (which is easier to automate) and toward a generalized, multidisciplinary practical approach toward personal evolution.
